View the Cut and Fill Quantities

You can view how much cut and fill will be required at the job site in the 3D tab as the cut and fill quantities are superimposed on the current layer.

This feature enables you to view exactly where cut and fill quantities are required on the site. Sections that require cut are red and sections that require fill are blue. The darker the color, the more cut or fill is required.
